China Cao Makes History In Men’s 10m Platform As Delay Takes Bronze

Posted by

Tom Daley of Great Britain won bronze in the men’s 10m platform diving final at Tokyo 2020 after an exciting final. The 27-year-old was in a three-way fight for gold, but Cao Yuan and Yang Jian of China were in fine form and took the first two slots.

In a nerve-wracking men’s synchronised 10m platform final last week, Daley and Matty Lee ended a long wait for gold.

Throughout the final, he appeared cool and attentive, and he celebrated poolside after winning his fourth Olympic medal – a third bronze – in his fourth Games.

“I am overjoyed that these Olympics have turned out the way they have,” Daley told BBC Sport. “I feel like I’m a new athlete now, and it’s great to be here…” I’d always hoped to, but if someone had told me I’d win a gold and a bronze, I’d have laughed in their face!
